      Very beautiful. Nothing like a day of honest labor with grampa. Love how you allowed the scenery to play the lead role. Where was this filmed?

      Hi Sue
      Amy sent me your video, I just watched it. It was serene and beautiful. I wish you much success in your “short film” career. It was truly a family production, the very best kind of production.
      With sincere best wishes.

      I like the way the story unfolds at its own pace, without dialogue. Captivating, pure cinema!

      I really enjoyed watching this. There was a strange tension to it. Like when the grandpa was sleeping. That was one of my favorite parts – when the kid messes with the radio. And also at the end, when the boy is driving, I was holding my breath. Beautiful little film.

      That was a nice film and really peaceful to watch. Beautiful scenery and actors a plus. The shooting and directing was right on. Way to go girl.

    10. There is real beauty in the steady flow of movement, and the lack of dialogue makes it that much more poignant. The depiction of the human and generational connection of passing on a tradition is spot on and timely, as we see this less and less frequently in today's society.

      And who knew that the Christmas Tree was so much work! I look forward to what's next.
